Launched in 2012, the Renault Clio 4 won the Golden Steering Wheel Award the same year. In 2015, it won MOTOR magazine’s Bang For Your Buck award, and it was voted “Best small car” by AutoBILD, the top-selling car magazine in the world. Offering a range of powerful engines and one of the best front-drive launch control systems ever built, the Clio 4 remains in production at time of writing. The lighting technology used in these cars is however more than 15 years old today.
The factory-fitted option was a H7/H1 halogen headlight made by Hella, which features an H7 reflector that produces an average light beam even when new. In many cases, its light output has been further compromised as bulb heat and general ageing cause the reflective layer to peel off.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your Renault Clio 4 is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H1/H7, H7/H1 halogen headlights, there are upgrade kits that will fit inside your existing headlights.
These complete retrofit kits not only provide you with superior brightness and durability; they are also more affordable than average Renault Clio xenon headlights with bulbs and ballasts, and since all components are brand new, they come with a 2-year warranty. Additional benefits over OEM headlights include Canbus-proof designs and effortless halogen-to-xenon conversions. What’s more, the levelling systems will work without any adjustments to the headlight connectors, and you can use any ballasts that you might already own to save further on xenon upgrades.
No matter which retrofit upgrade kit you pick, you will improve the light output considerably, making for safer and more enjoyable driving. And, of course, your Renault Clio will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
